Ruby

I’ll write you as I please,

A character in my story

Is all you’ll ever be

 

I’ll make you dance

I’ll make you sing

I’ll make you fall in love with me

 

When I feel I’m in over my head

I’ll cut your strings, puppet,

And set you free.

Cleopatra

She swings and she sways

To the trill of the piano,

With a facade of blonde hair

And the red lips of a vixen

To hide the fear held in her eyes

Of the terminal illness

Dancing in her veins

From dusk ’til dawn.
